U2 Celeb Bono partners with Monsanto, G8, to biowreck African farms with GMOs

bono africa saviour

Professional do – gooder and former rock star Bono (full name Pro – Bono because everything he does is for Bono) is very fond of strutting around the world proclaiming his love for Africa. Like most celebrity lefties he is a hypocrite; if he really wanted to help Africans improve their lot he would not be helping some of the most evil corporations in the world to enslave African peasant farmers while simultaneously kissing the arses and filling the coffers of the tyrants who are responsible for making things so shite across most of the African continent.

from News Beacon Ireland:

At the G8 Summit held two weeks ago at Camp David, President Obama met with private industry and African heads of state to launch the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, a euphemism for monocultured, genetically modified crops and toxic agrochemicals aimed at making poor farmers debt slaves to corporations, while destroying the ecosphere for profit.

And Bono, of the rock group U2, is out shilling for Monsanto on this one. It’s phase 2 of the Green Revolution. Tanzania, Ghana, and Ethiopia are the first to fall for the deception, with Mozambique, Cote d’Ivoire, Burkina Faso and other African nations lining up for the “Grow Africa Partnership,” under Obama’s “Global Agricultural Development” plan.

In Obama Pitches India Model of GM Genocide to Africa, Scott Creighton writes: … Continue reading

A while ago in a comment thread under an article about third world problems someone asked was I advocating recolonizing Africa? I wasn’t, I was advocating non intervention (as usual) but as recolonization is inevitable, if we’re not going to stop throwing money at them perhaps we should be in their grabbing some of the goodies alongside our G8 partners – led inevitably by the Politically correct hypocrites of Obamaland.

“A landmark G8 initiative to boost agriculture and relieve poverty has been damned as a new form of colonialism after African governments agreed to change seed, land and tax laws to favour private investors over small farmers.

Ten countries made more than 200 policy commitments, including changes to laws and regulations after giant agribusinesses were granted unprecedented access to decision-makers over the past two years.

The pledges will make it easier for companies to do business in Africa through the easing of export controls and tax laws, and through governments ringfencing huge chunks of land for investment.”

So as we can now clearly see, the landmark initiative was not aimed at helping African farmers shake off the yoke of economic colonialism, but at helping fascistic American Corporations enslave African subsistence farmers. And of course, helping Bono sell a few records to emotionally retarded, mentally defective American liberals.

Africa would be better off perhaps if it was recolonised by the old European colonial powers rather than by greedy American corporations that don’t give a flying fuck about the local population and only care about how much profit they can squeeze out of their assets. but the European power are all bankrupt so the Africans are stuck with America and Bono, Russia or China. none of those are good options.

Con Man Ruins Glastonbury For Many Festival Fans

So it’s over and for another year we have only our memories of the world’s greatest music and performing arts fesival to sustain us. (What? SxSW in Austin Texas? Fuck off, that’s a computer games convention for geeks these days …)

This years’ festival went well, the weather was goodish, the line up fair and on the whole there was little trouble. A lot of people said the weekend was spoiled for them however by some con artist whose name is God wandering around for three days trying to convince people he is Bono.

Evidence (As If You Needed Any) That All The Green Movement Are Insane

Earth Hour is an event that is aimed at raising awareness of climate change. The idea is we all switch off the lights, tele, computers, highly addictive internet web sites life Facebook, life support machines, trains, cars, aircraft engines, and everything that causes carbon emissions for one hour to remind us what a very very lot of harm we are doing to the environment by burning fossil fuels.

It may also remind people what a nightmare life would be if we did not burn fossil fuels.

Earth Hour has been celebrated for the last four years and has the support on the United Nations, all leading politicians, scientists, academics, Bono, and lots of celebrities you never even knew existed.

This year’s earth hour will be on Saturday, March 26 and will begin at 8:30 pm. Yes that is during opening hours, I told you these people are insane didn’t I?

Left leaning mainstream media, accurate, truthful and factual as ever reported last year the lights went out all round the world for an hour as they have every years since Earth Hour began.

You never noticed? You’ve never even heard of earth hour?

Well neither have most people it seems. It is the kind of utterly fucking pointless meaningful gesture that delusional cupid stunts like Bono and Madonna and Barack Obama think makes a difference but everyone who lives in the real world can’t be arsed with.

A few tree , and pachouli – reeking weirdie – beardies switching off their electricity for hour doesn’t make the slightest difference of course, except maybe to the poor bastards whose life support system is switched off to ‘save the planet’.

Solipsism: symptoms and and the cure.

Solipsism, if you are not familiar with the word, can be defined in two ways:

(i) the theory that the self can be aware of nothing but its own experiences and states

(ii) the theory that nothing exists or is real but the self.*

I don’t know where this belief or philosophy origniated but it was very popular with the more space-cadettish hippies I knew in the 1960’s and 70s.

Looking at a recent comment by fatsally on one of my posts I see solipsism has found its way into the school curriculum. “You can be whatever you want to be” is one of the motivational phrases used in education (see comment on Brown, a lust for glory). That solipsism should be offered to young people as a career choice is a tad disturbing as we have observed in television shows like The X Factor. In the auditions rounds a lot of seriously deluded people turn up who are sure a career in pop music awaits them simply because they “want it.”

Fortunately they have Simon Cowell to filter out those he does not think he can make money from.

Tony Blair is a solipsist, in his mind he is a revered world leader, an elder statesman looked up to by east and west alike. Bono is a solipsist, in his little bubble of self made reality the characters he creates actually give a fuck about what he says. Nick Clegg is a solipsist, he behaves as if he is leader of a political party.

Another case of solpsism is apparent in America where a novice politician decided he could be anything he wanted to be, even President. When people said, “You have no experience” or “You are not elegible under the consitution because your father was Kenyan,” this deluded man said:
“It is not those things, it is because I’se black you say I can’t be President.”

Not wanting to be thought racist the Amereican people let him be President and it quickly became clear that he thought the US economy ran on monopoly money.

Today it was announced the credit rating of the American government will be downgraded amid fears that they plan to pay their bills with monopoly money because they have no real money left.

Strangely, President Obama does not learn from his mistakes. In his mind the Standard & Poors rating agency does not exist or is run by mean spirited while folks who can’t stand to see a black man making such a great job of feeding the blind, healing the poor and leading the sick. And his mind is the only thing that truly exists.

Solipsism must be eradicated, it is an idea so dangerous it could wipe out intelligent thought. If Osama Bin Laden was a solipsist he would believe he is the third world war, if Damien Hirst was a solipsist he would belive he is an artist, if Robbie Williams was a solipsist he would believe he is Robbie Wiliams, if Lenny Henry was a solipsist he would believe he is still funny.

There are probably more solipsists in the world than people with Swine Flu. Still, while there is no effective cure for swine flu, only a vaccine that relieves manufacturers of the symptoms of the recession, there is a cure for solipsism.

If you come across somebody who displays the characteristic symptoms of the disease just hit them in the face with a shovel. That way they will not be able to deny the shovel exists.

Hugging An African Does Not Help

It has been the big thing for fading celebrities who have an album, film or book to promote, they know it will make them look cool and right – on global champions of politically correct thinking and it is so easy and costs very little. They just get a charity or television company to send them to Africa as a “Goodwill Ambassador”, have their press agents inform the media and then, having made sure plenty of paparazzi are watching they grab the nearest African and hug them.

Hugging an African and talking about poverty, disease, hunger and how your new album / movie / book was inspired by the plight of so many Africans guarantees front page and headline stories all around the world. All the usual suspects are doing it, Bono, Madonna, Sting, Brangelina, Kylie Minogue, Gerri Halliwell, Joanna Lumley, Robbie Williams, Annie Lennox, Billy Conolly and the list goes on. It will not be long until you next see one of them grinning desperately for the cameras of the global media as they hug a bewildered and embarrassed African.

The western guilt trip demands celebrities make these gestures of course, but are they universally welcomed in Africa?

It is bad enough the west exploited the continent and its resources and people during the colonial era without western governments and charities pouring in financial aid while politicians and pop stars pour in and offer advice to Africans on how to run their nations and lives and less well known western guilt tourists just turn up and start hugging unsuspecting Africans oblivious of the fact that in many African societies hugging strangers is a total no-no. Not that telling the average fading celeb. or determined tourist something is not acceptable will ever stop them. They are being paid or have paid good money to hug Africans and they are damn well gonna, OK? There is nothing short of a panga through the skull that will stop them.

Bono of course knows beyond doubt that being patronised by him is the greatest blessing life can bestow on a person from the third world and if he just keeps on patronising bewildered third would peasants they will come to understand how fortunate they are. It is rumoured that Madonna has bought several small African countries and passed laws compelling inhabitants to be available for hugs whenever she wants a photo-op. What is certainly true is that Madge has threatened African governments that she will play gigs there if they try to stop her hugging the locals.

Hugging Africans is not the only problem westerners cause it seems. According to a new book, Dead Aid by Dambisa Moyo, western aid and the “scientific advice” that is a condition of getting the money are counter productive. Dambisa, a Nigerian polymath whose qualifications include BSc (chemistry), M.A. PhD (economics) , MBA and being a premier league hottie claims aid and the conditions attached have stifled development and progress throughout much of Africa. If you are not convinced yet to buy the book (and for guys it is worth the price just for the picture of Dambisa on the dust jacket) read the article Everyone Knows It Doesn’t Work and learn more of Ms. Moyo’s ideas for solving Africa’s problems.

Perhaps if we started listening to Africans about how Africa’s problems could be solved rather than European politicians seeking votes and academics seeking grants and American Preacher – Politicians whose skewed view of African history is more fantastical than Lord Of The Rings we might start seeing social and economic progress in that continent.

Muffin the Issue (The Blue Peter Cat)

What makes you think I’m planning to eat these muffins? I’m a cat, I don’t eat muffins. Look into my eyes, look into my eyes, you will not see me eat these muffins

The BBC do have a way of dumping shite on their own heads from a great height. The latest example of this skill is the scandal of The Blue Peter Pussy (ooooh, Mrs. Slocombe.)
Now the whole pussy cockup (oops, pardon!) revolved around the choice of a name for the new Blue Peter cat. The reason given when it emerged that the cat had been named “socks” although the name voted for by the viewer was “cookie” was that the production team had been so busy patronising non middle class kids they forgot to switch on the vote counting computer.

Within hours of the announcement Boggart Blog had been contacted by a whistleblower who revealed that in fact “Cookie” had been rejected because it could be interpreted as a slang term for female genitalia.

You would think someone would have known that cookies and muffins are not the same thing, but no, what we have always suspected about the Blue Peter team was confirmed, they really are so twee they don’t have holes in their bottoms. Or if they do, they have their heads up said holes.

The whole sorry business did remind us that children love pets, so to encourage more young readers to Boggart Blog, we asked fatsally (who has more cats that Jenny Greenteeth has frogs) to fix us up with three kittens for the office.
To avoid confusion their names will be Minge, Quim and Slit.

Getting The Clap

Don’t we all love it when the most pompous celebrities get their come uppance.

I heard a wonderful story yesterday, it happened a whiole ago so maybe some of you already know of it.
During a gig in Glasgow Saint Bono stood frontstage, held up his hands for silence and then started clapping slowly.

“Do you realise,” he said, “every time I clap my hands a child dies in Africa.

And from the audience a Glaswegian voice called out “well stop fucking clapping Jimmy.”

Boggart Blog gets back Bono’s trousers.

Remember our crusading Boggart Blog post from a couple of days ago. We told you that U2 singer still had not found the tousers he had been looking for. For almost twenty years Bono fretted, pined and sang about those trousers but thanks to the intervention of Boggart Blog, within forty – eight hours they have been returned to him.

Follow the Boggart, the Blog that gets things done.

What Has Bono Been Looking For

Doesn’t that Bono bloke get on your nerves. I’m fed up of him moaning about he still hasn’t found what he’s looking for. If he had ever bothered to tell us what he tell us what he is looking for maybe we could have helped. But what should we be seeking, God? A decent lyricist? A set of personality lifts?
Jenny Greenteeth, omnipresent pan dimensional being, does not like to think of anyone not being able to find closure and move on so the Boggart Blog will reveal what Bono is looking for and enable him to be reunited with it before the L8 gig.

The thing that Bono still hasn’t found is …………his trousers.

Now if you think this sounds like a case of not being able to find his arse with both hands (an affliction probably caught from President Bush) let us elaborate. This is no ordinary pair of trousers but a rather special pair he wore on the U2 Joshua Tree tour in 1987.
“They were part of the band, like my Stetson hat and glasses,” he told a court during the hearing of a case in which U2 are suing a wardrobe manager for return of the trousers along with several other items she took as souvenirs.
“The trousers went missing in 1987,” the singer told the court, “they were having a little acoustic jam with The Edge, next time I looked they were gone.”
The accused commented to a Greenteeth reporter, “its pathetic that after eighteen years someone like him is still going on about those effing trousers. Someone like him must have more trousers than reasonable person could ever need, in fact as he is so keen on Africa, I’ll tell you a secret: he could donate next year’s trouser budget and save an entire sodding nation. He is obsessed with effing trousers. Trousers and his height. his trousers are specially cut to disguise the fact that he wears personality lifts.”
Case for the defence rests on the fact that any rock artist on tour has many identical pairs of trousers and technically they belong to the management company.
Asked to comment outside the court Bono said, ” it isn’t the value of the trousers, it’s the principle. There was an emotional bond between me and those trousers. What is more, I’m five feet effing nine and I’ll set Bob Geldof on anyone who says different.
